Founded in 1495 by Bishop Elphinstone, the University of Aberdeen boasts 500 years of excellence, and has secured a position as a leading international learning centre in the 21st century. Associated with five Nobel Prize winners, we have a proud heritage in teaching and research and focus on equipping our postgraduate taught students with advanced knowledge and techniques in specialised or cross-disciplinary areas of study.
Our results speak for themselves— within six months of graduating, 96% of Aberdeen students go on to employment or further study, and some of our degree programmes provide students with industry placements as well as incorporating chartered examinations in to students’ periods of study.
The scholarship is open to self-funded full-time on campus EU International fee students registering for on-campus programmes, who don’t receive either an externally funded scholarship or any other University of Aberdeen scholarships (excluding awards made by the University of Aberdeen Development Trust).
